Or you can fly via another U.S. airport to Orlando. Ask you travel agent for more information.

Orlando has two airports:

  • Orlando International Airport - one of the most modern in the world. You are likely to fly here if on a scheduled service such as British Airways or Virgin Atlantic Airways. A shuttle train (monorail) takes you to the main terminal.
  • Orlando Sanford - charter flights tend to arrive here such as Monarch Airlines, Thomas Cook and Thomson Airways. Sanford is smaller, quicker and easier to get out of and around 35 miles north of the theme parks.
